1
To begin, place a pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. Add the onion, garlic and thyme and gently sweat - the onions should not colour
  • 1 knob of butter
  • 1 large onion, finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated
  • 1 sprig of thyme, leaves picked
2
Once the onions are soft, add the rice and stir until all the grains are coated in the butter. In a separate pan, heat the vegetable stock
  • 250g of risotto rice
  • 1.4l vegetable stock
3
Add a ladleful of stock to the pan. Once the rice has absorbed the liquid, add another ladleful. Repeat until 1 litre of stock is used up, stirring occasionally to stop the rice from sticking to the pan, approximately 15-20 minutes
4
Remove from the heat and allow to cool. More stock will be added later on to finish the risotto
5
Place a saucepan over a medium heat and add a dash of olive oil. Sweat the carrots until they soften, then add the cabbage and 100ml of vegetable stock and steam until soft
  • 1 dash of olive oil
  • 1/4 cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 carrot, grated
6
Season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat. The bubble and squeak will be added to the risotto to finish
  • 1 pinch of pepper
  • 1 pinch of salt
7
Boil some water in a separate pan then add the vinegar. Poach 4 of the eggs for 2-3 minutes for a runny yolk, or 4 minutes for a firm yolk. Lift the eggs out with a slotted spoon to check they are cooked
  • 100ml of white wine vinegar
  • 4 eggs
8
Once cooked, transfer the eggs onto a tray lined with kitchen towel and place in the fridge to cool while you prepare the crumbing mix
9
Add the flour to a bowl, the 2 beaten eggs to another and the breadcrumbs to a third. Roll each egg in the flour, the beaten egg and finally the breadcrumbs. Set aside until ready to fry
  • 50g of plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g of white breadcrumbs
10
To finish the risotto, pour the remaining 300ml of stock into the reserved pot of rice and heat until the rice absorbs it and the risotto is thick and runny. Stir in a knob of butter and remove from the heat
  • 1 knob of butter
11
Depending on how rich you like risotto, place half or all of the mascarpone on top of the rice so it melts in, then add the Parmesan to finish. Season to taste and stir in the bubble and squeak
  • 1/4 tbsp of light mascarpone
  • 125g of Parmesan, grated
  • 1 pinch of pepper
  • 1 pinch of salt
12
Before serving, fry the crumbed eggs in a pan of vegetable oil until golden and crispy, approximately 2 minutes. Remove and drain on kitchen towel
  • 1000ml of vegetable oil
13
Divide the risotto onto plates and arrange a crispy egg on top. Finish with some chopped tarragon and a little olive oil. Serve immediately
  • 6g of tarragon
  • 1 dash of olive oil
